CEDRIC CHRISTIE (b 1962)
Cedric Christie was born in London, where he continues to live and work. His practice explores a broad range of cultural and art historical references, often using humour and irony as subtle vehicles of communication.
Christie incorporates and manipulates everyday objects such as snooker balls, scaffolding, and even cars to create sculptures that are meticulously and skilfully made. They become both a critical appraisal of modernism as well as a playful exploration of form and meaning.
Cedric Christie has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally and has curated a number of large-scale group exhibitions including Something I don't do and The Things of Life at Flowers Gallery. His work is held in the private collections of Anita Zabludowicz, Unilever and Derwent Valley Holdings among others.
